Iceland's Holuhraun has been erupting continuously now for almost five months.

It is Iceland's largest flow since the Laki eruption in 1783-84, with lava flowing over the last few weeks at an estimated 50 to 70 cubic meters per second .

High levels of sulfur-dioxide are still being recorded in the area and tourists and hikers are being kept away from the volcano.

The following video comes from CCTV.
